“Continuation of Discrete Homotopy”
I will continue to prove that the operation I defined last week is well defined, and is a group operation. The next step is to define higher homotopy groups, and maybe even do a (very) small example.Mehdi Radjabalipour, Iranian Academy of Sciences

"Auxiliary Results on Homotopy Groups and Digraphs"
Abstract: Two weeks ago, we defined a digraph $F^k(X,x_0)$, whose vertices were a particular set of homomorphisms, and a group $\sigma_k(X,x_0)$, whose elements were connected components of $F^k(X,x_0)$. This week, we will begin looking at these structures in more detail.

"Rational numbers and automata"
In this talk, I will describe a new model for describing certain sets S of rational numbers using finite automata. We will see that it is decidable if every element of S is an integer, and that sup S is computable. However, closely related questions are still open. There are applications to combinatorics on words.
Refreshments will be served in MC 5046 at 3:30pm. All are welcome.

“Roth’s theorem on ﬁnite abelian groups”
Ross Willard, Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo
"Larose's theorem"
Putting together some of the machinery developed this term, I will prove Larose’s Theorem: if X is a ﬁnite, connected reﬂexive digraph and X admits a Taylor operation, then for every k ≥ 1, the kth homotopy group of X is trivial.

"Pencils of quadrics and 2Selmer groups of Jacobians of hyperelliptic curves"
Since Bhargava and Shankar's new method of counting orbits, average orders of the 2,3,4,5Selmer groups of elliptic curves over Q have been obtained. In this talk we will look at a construction of torsors of Jacobians of hyperelliptic curves using pencils of quadrics and see how they are used to compute the average order of the 2Selmer groups of Jacobians of hyperelliptic curves over Q with a rational (non)Weierstrass point.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
